    Hello DrEmpiricism,

    The MiniNT key is only to allow being able to format with ReFS, otherwise Windows 10 natively supports ReFS drives.
    It supports ReFS in its OOBE only on mirrored devices and virtual machines. It has the ReFS files on the system but 99% of the registry entries are omitted. Even using the MiniNT registry entry is sporadic for people formatting actual drives with ReFS and very inconsistant.

    Also in its OOBE, Windows 10 does not even recognize a ReFS formatted drive because, again, the registry entries are omitted. It's not difficulty to add ReFS as a recognizable filesystem permanently within Windows 10 and its registry settings.

    So does this mean Refs is never going to really take over from NTFS?

    Given Macriun Reflect Free only does Rapid Delta Restore on NTFS, I cannot see why I would ever move to Refs.

    For most consumers, it isn't even needed or feasible, in my opinion.
    Plus you can't even boot Windows from it, and Store apps cannot be installed on it.
